"Woods failed to land his touted knockout punch on Fraser's chin but he piled up enough points by his aggressiveness to gain victory. Fraser took few chances and kept well covered. He sent the Negro on his haunches in the first round but it appeared to result more from a shove than a blow. Woods swung from every direction in an effort to land an effective punch but found himself pounding on Fraser's guard most of the time." (Woods had just finished high school in Yakima, Washington, and moved to the Seattle area.) Everett Daily Herald.
